Animals and Art

Managed to get out for a short spin this morning, chilly NE wind.

This flock “enjoying” a field of turnips, between Kennington and Sunningwell.

Members of Sunningwell School of Art kindly hung these gaudy items from their hacked about willow tree.

Contrasting colours showed up well.

Close by these four attracted my attention.

Back to Abingdon, Kingfisher Barn in the background of this small flock, provides self catering holiday accommodation.

Close to my destination now, just upstream of Abingdon Lock.

No, still not quite there.

Chainsaw art, this has been here for a few years now, though it has always been dry when I’ve visited before, looks a lot better with a watery background.

A closer shot without the bike.

Thoroughly enjoyed this morning’s spin.

Distance – 16 miles.

Journey – Solo.

Bike – Dawes Galaxy Classic.

    Always enjoy seeing the photos of your part of the world.

    Ahhh… to be able to lounge about in a field of turnips… Nice ride 🙂 I enjoyed the croc/alligator art – it could give a real fright to people if it were located in some places in northern Australia!

    The Navigator is right! We surprised a small one in a creek in the Sugar Cane fields below Mission Beach. Not sure who jumped the most, us or the (baby) croc which quickly swam away.

    Good piece of chainsaw art.

    Love cycling with animals surrounding me! Alligators in Florida are a bit scary too — for those of us who are not used to those prehistoric looking creatures.
